-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Greenville, South Carolina at Bon Secours Wellness Arena with the go-home show for Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules. WWE is advertising Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins, and Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Samoa Joe in a Triple Threat. Join me for live Raw as the show airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-There is no WWE Smackdown house show tonight, presumably due to the Memorial Day holiday.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight’s WWE Raw in Greenville, and Tuesday’s Smackdown in Atlanta. If you are going to Raw, Smackdown, or an upcoming live event and want to help us out with reports or live updates, contact me at email@example.com
